“We are thankful for the support of the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service to help our members gain valuable experience as they begin their careers as police officers,” says Sergeant Melanie Roach of the Batchewana First Nation Police.
“Having a partnership with our colleagues with the Batchewana First Nation Police is mutually beneficial,” says Inspector Derek Dewar. “Our members are able to share their experience and the service creates positive relationships with a neighbouring service, which we often collaborate with on investigations.”
Since 2012 the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service has hosted six officers from other police agencies. This includes members from the Anishinabek Police Service, Batchewana First Nation Police, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
